Jenny Saville is one of the most interesting, complex, ambitious and instinctive figurative painters working anywhere in the world today. Since her graduation from Glasgow School of Art in 1992, when she erupted into public consciousness with her degree show featuring a series of monumental female nudes, and continuing through to her more recent paintings of multiple figures, Saville has made works of extraordinary power that extend the subject matter of painting and test the possibilities of the medium as much as they powerfully articulate the experience of being in the world today.

This summer, Tate Modern will explore the art of the Weimar Republic (1919-33) in a year-long, free display, drawing upon the rich holdings of The George Economou Collection. This presentation of around seventy paintings and works on paper will address the complex paradoxes of the Weimar era, in which liberalisation and anti-militarism flourished in tandem with political and economic uncertainty. These loans offer a rare opportunity to view a range of artworks not ordinarily on public display – some of which have never been seen in the United Kingdom before – and to see a selection of key Tate works returned to the context in which they were originally created and exhibited nearly one hundred years ago.
